Long Term Application

Welcome to the Long Term Application!

We are so excited to be taking this next step with you in your journey towards cross-cultural ministry! Below are links to each part of Phase 1:

  • Application (Split into 5 Parts)
  • Reference Forms
  • Acknowledgment of Field Policy Handbook

Each piece can be filled in online, some require forms to be signed and scanned. The best practice is to fill in the reference list first to make sure there is plenty of time to hear back from each reference.
